sketch selection - creating features

I always seem to struggle with sketch selection when creating a feature;
i.e. simple extrusion with 2 circles, one on the face of a previous feature,
he other the existing sketched circle. I know you can de-select after both
are highlighted and selected.. is this the only way?. I am currently
attempting a loft going from a circle on the face of an existing octagon
feature to a larger circle .75" away. NO matter what I try, the octagon
portion is picked up as part of the loft (I only want the circle inside of
it).

Is there anything preventing you from making the octagon out of
construction lines?
